Just what we've always wanted. Marriage tips from baby-making machine Michelle Duggar.
She's been married to Jim Bob Duggar for 27 years so we guess she knows a thing or two about having a
submissive happy marriage.
The reality star recently took to the stage at a conference, which aired on the season premiere of 19 Kids and Counting, to speak to other Christian women about how she makes her marriage work.
Here are some of the HIGHlights:
- A Husband Needs A Wife Who Accepts Him As A Leader And Believes In His God-Given Responsibilities: Husbands are commanded to govern their wives; God works through a man’s decisions — good or bad; Bad decisions reveal his needs and allow the wife to appeal and demonstrate Godly character; The more a wife trusts her husband, the more careful he will be in giving her direction; Never ask others for counsel without your husband’s approval; reassure your husband that you understand and believe that he is your God-given leader.
- A Husband Needs A Wife Who Will Continue To Develop Inward And Outward Beauty: How can you become more of the wife of your husband’s dreams?; discover and conform to your husband’s real wishes; explain your hairstyle to others on the basis of your submission to your authority; separate your 'rights' from your responsibilities.
(and our personal fave:)
- Ask Your Husband To Define Your Responsibilities: Ask your husband to tell you when you have a resistant spirit; dispel a backbiting tongue by silence.
We're just going to go out on a limb here and assume that Jim Bob doesn't go around asking himself what HE can do to make a happier wife.
Here's the thing - marriage "responsibilities" should be mutual. There isn't a "leader" and a "follower," it's a communal relationship that is based on love and EQUAL respect for one another.
We're glad this works for them, but, wow, way to set women back a hundred years.
Last week we were totally heartbroken to report that 19 kinds And Counting mom Michelle Duggar suffered a miscarriage.
This week Michelle and her husband Jim Bob Duggar have confirmed that they plan to have a Memorial Service for the daughter they named Jubilee Shalom Duggar.
Jubilee Duggar's memorial service will be held Wednesday for friends and Duggar family members.
Jim Bob spoke about the about the loss of his 20th child, saying:
We're still in shock that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are expecting their 20th child.
Even with the frightening premature birth of their 19th child, daughter Josie, and Michelle's life-threatening preeclampsia, you would think that 19 kids was enough.
But the reality tv parents are defending their decision to have another baby.
Michelle, age 45, says:
"If we felt that way, we would have stopped back with our second birth. There are many women who have experienced preeclampsia and have gone on to have more children.
That whole mind set that you stop after a problem pregnancy isn't realistic. You may encounter struggles along the way. You may not have a perfect pregnancy, but each child is a precious gift."
Even though they live debt-free and built their own home in Tontitown, Arkansas, the family still gets criticism that the children aren't properly cared for - especially since the older children have so much more responsibilities than the average teen. Jim Bob says:
"We homeschool, so we are around our children day in and day out. Because I am in real estate, I am home and can be with the children a lot. When we go to the store or run errands, we take the kids one on one and we get to spend more time individually than a lot of parents do."
Michelle says she actually learns from the criticism, adding:
"The beauty of being in a large family is that everyone works together as a team and it is about teaching our children responsibility.
There are a lot of good things we can learn from our critics. We really believe we are following our faith and there are sometimes going to be people who don't agree and we aren't going to worry about the negative things stated.
We are thankful for those out there who are happy and we are grateful for each and every gift of a child."
True, a child is a gift, but this is definitely taking things too far. All we can say is that we hope for a safe and easy pregnancy for Michelle and their unborn child.

Again! He is a father again! He and his wife, Anna, already have a 20-month-old daughter named Mackynzie!
Like father, like son!
Josh Duggar, the eldest son of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s from TLC's 19 and Counting, became the father of a son yesterday. Weighing in at 8 pounds, 5 ounces, the little tyke becomes Jim Bob and Michelle's second grandchild and will be given an "M" name, as soon as his parents decide on one.
So many infants running around this family! We can't imagine how they manage! More power to them, we guess!
Congrats on your new bundle of joy!
